Amy Reid is a queer electronic musician, producer, sound and visual artist striving to transform spaces visually, sonically and socially. Her work often explores the intersection of the natural, human-made world, and the liminal spaces of existence through the use of field recordings, vocals, and electronic instruments. Electronic music is a space in which emotions and experiences that remain impossible to communicate with words are felt and heard, creating a reciprocal space of shared experience and understanding. This unexplainable space is an opportunity to imagine new possibilities of existence rooted in respect, love and mindfulness.
Her first solo album Hirsute (released through Friends Records) was hailed by Baltimore City Paper as “The Best Solo Debut of 2017” receiving attention for it’s luscious textures and vulnerable lyrics from Impose magazine and other media outlets. Diving deeper into the realm of ambient music and sonic healing spaces, Reid’s sophomore music project isolated Bliss was released May 8th, 2020 through Atlantic Rhythms. Isolated Bliss, combines field recordings and electronic elements composed while living on a remote island, Monhegan, Maine, with the goal of sonically transporting the listener to a space existing somewhere between reality and a distant world. Valuing artist residencies as an opportunity to expand ideas and processes, her most recent collaborative installation, Future Canopies, was developed at The Merriweather District AIR in Columbia, MD. Reid built a 12ft high, 25ft wide geodesic dome where viewers could experience 5 original meditative compositions on a
continuous loop and visceral collaged projections by Johnny Rogers.
Touring nationally and internationally since 2014, she has shared the stage with critically acclaimed artists such as; Future Islands, Dan Deacon, SOPHIE, XIU XIU, Boy Harsher, Princess Nokia, Mykki Blanco, Lower Dens, Ami Dang, Abdu Ali and John Mayer to name a few. She has participated in residencies at SPACE Gallery (Portland, ME), The Merriweather District Air (Columbia, MD), MICA (Baltimore, MD), received a Katzenberger fellowship at The National Portrait Gallery (Washington, D.C) and Rubys grant to support Unearthing Queer Ecologies in 2020. In addition to her music practice, she founded Baltimore’s GRL PWR Collective in 2014 whose mission is to create platforms for women and LGBTQ identifying people, elevating visibility for under-represented artists and talent. Recently, GRL PWR was chosen as a Grit Fund Grantee for the 2019-2020 grant cycle. Their last event SWEAT, an inclusive drag show, featured Nina Bo’Nina Brown, an international drag queen
appearing on RuPaul’s Drag Race.
